Cobb County Police confirm the gunman was dead from self inflicted gunshot wounds in a loading bay at the facility northwest of Atlanta.

Witness say the shooter had assault rifle, knife and bullets strapped across their chest `like Rambo’ “I mean, he looked like he was heading into war. As soon as I saw him, I ran the other way,” a witness told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.I ran and made sure that people upstairs were gone. He was in all black. I think he had a camo vest. He had an assault rifle and bullets strapped to his chest.”

“The situation is now stabilized and we are focused on the needs of our team members and cooperating with the law enforcement investigation of this tragedy,” FedEx spokesman Scott Fielder told CNN.

Cobb County police spokesman Michael Bowman said an active shooter was reported early Tuesday around 6 a.m. at the package sorting facility  He says police had surrounded the building and are working to clear it.
